Everything you need to know about Safe Ministry training in the Anglican Diocese of Sydney – now and into the future.

Children are highly valued by God and deserve the strongest possible protection in our churches and ministries.

It is essential that all people involved in Anglican ministry to the vulnerable, including children and teenagers, are thoroughly equipped and trained with approved Safe Ministry training.

The Anglican Diocese of Sydney is an endorsed training partner under the Safe Church Training Agreement which is a nationally agreed standard for Safe Ministry training. From April 1, 2017 the Professional Standards Unit is responsible for the administration of this training in the Sydney Diocese.

All people working with children or youth in ministry, including ministers and assistant ministers, are required to complete Safe Ministry Essentials, and then every three years undertake Safe Ministry Refresher training.

Young leaders under the age of 18 years should complete the Safe Ministry Junior training.
